Color Palette as caption or text

Dear all,

In my job I often create some guidelines for various companies.

My problem is, each time I create a colour palette for them, I have to write the colour codes in RGB / CMYK / # (and sometimes Pantone®)

Is there an automatic way to do that ? A script maybe, that produce text code of the colours, then I just have to copy-paste them in my document....?

Thanks in advance for a tip or the solution

Michel

Hi Michel,there is a script by Gerald Singelmann, that would do what you want. I assume it will not work with color groups because the last update is from 2013:All in German:Farbwerte exportieren | InDesign FAQ It would write all color values of the Swatches Panel to a text file in your desktop folder. Did not test it, though…Regards, Uwe

Hello Uwe,

it's nearly working... but the result is a bit messy in the text file... and it gives only CMYK...

I will search for a recent version of this script, maybe this one is a bit old ? (2013)

See attached.
